Marquis Hill on Music, Mentoring, and Monk
This episode is for you. Why? Well, you don't have to be an audiophile or avid listener to understand the universal language of the art form. Music often sets the stage to experience the beautiful harmony of purpose and performance. We invite you to open your hearts along with your ears to our engaging conversation with musician, Marquis Hill. Marquis Hill is the 2014 winner of the illustrious,
Thelonious Monk International Trumpet Competition. Showcasing his immense talent in front of jazz giants like Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones, Roy Hargrove, and
Randy Brecker, along with sharing the stage with President Bill Clinton and Pharell Williams, thrust Marquis onto the national stage and a recording contract with major label, Concord Records.
Though success can come fast and furious, Marquis is a grounded musician anchored by his deep Chicago roots and humbled by a village of mentors, educators, and friends that inspire him to create and live on purpose.
In this episode we learned about the big "why" that powers his actions and contributes to his success, the life changing experience of sharing the stage with Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, Pharell, and Bill Clinton, and how edu-
cation and mentorship shaped his life and influences his work. Also learn about how his search to find his own voice and how mentorship has offered him much more than music and has made him who he is.
